Are Muslims sure 100% of going to paradise and entering the heavens? Where is Prophet Muhammed Now?
Prophet Mohamed did not even know he had saved himself. How can he save others?
How can he give you salvation if he did not even know how to get it for himself?
I need 100% assurance

Let us say there were 30 students doing an exam in school The teacher said just have faith in me and I’ll give you a 100% score without you even doing your work However 29 students studied hard for this exam and did the exam as they should but didn’t have faith in her 1 student said No I’m not doing the exam I’m going to tell the teacher
Hello teacher, I have faith in you, then the teacher fails the 29 students that studied very hard and did excellent in the exam but passed the 1 student who did not study and did nothing in the exam but just had faith in the teacher.

Prophet Jesus warns his followers thinking that they guarantee heaven and paradise in the parable of the wedding feast:
“A man gave a great dinner to which he invited many. When the time for the dinner came, he dispatched his servant to say to those invited, ‘Come, everything is now ready.’ But one by one, they all began to excuse themselves.”

This is a provocative image of the flat-out rejection of those faithful followers who found themselves too busy in their worldly affairs to give time to God. They claimed to be Christians, but their actions did not reflect that. When it came down to it, they preferred other things to their relationship with God.

If you are planning on spending eternity in Heaven, then your life here on Earth should reflect that. Many people of faith would say that God’s teachings are a part of their lives. But this is exactly the point that Prophet Jesus was making in the parable. For Christians, they think that God’s teachings are just another part of your life, like your kid’s soccer team or fantasy football.

· Alcohol, Drugs, Smoking, Gambling
· Going to their holy place with no dress code allowing them to go in there half naked
· Having sex before marriage and pre-marital relationships
· Not forbidding abortions
· Being next to the opposite in the same room together
· Allowing any meat to be eaten including dogs’ rats’ pigs’ and cats because it is not what you eat that defiles you and you can eat anything with 4 legs
· Having wars to spread the religion as they have done thousands of years ago allowing innocents to be killed as the book says to kill women and children
· Being self-righteous thinking judgment day is not for them and they are going straight to heaven
· Believing they will not be punished for their sins as they believe their god a shameful cursed death
· Their book does not forbid incest
· Not allowing women to teach
· Punish you with hell if you get divorced unless the wife cheats on her husband not the husband cheating on his wife?

As Muslims we do not think that God’s teachings are just something we fit into our life, rather our lives should revolve around Almighty God’s teachings. Islam teachings must come first before anything and must be like the food we eat or the air we breathe, necessary, essential, and central to our very existence.
As a Muslims, we believe that our destination is paradise and expect all good things from Allah SWT. This had been stated in the Noble Quran as a general role.
Yes, Almighty Allah has explained that in the Noble Quran as a blanket statement. But as a Muslims, we believe that there is a Judgement day for reasons.
This does NOT mean that every single Muslim will automatically go to paradise/heavens without being judged first and this is part of Almighty Allah’s absolute justice, that if any Muslim committed any form of major sins he/she will be punished for a while until he/she cleansed then the final destination is Paradise as long as this Muslim did not die as a polytheist thinking that God has sons or wives or consist of the trinity.
“Indeed, Allah does not forgive associating others with Him ˹in worship˺ but forgives anything else of whoever He wills. And whoever associates others with Allah has indeed committed a grave sin.”
The Women Chapter (4:48)
Here is the general role from the Noble Quran: –
“Whoever seeks a way other than Islam, it will never be accepted from them, and in the Hereafter, they will be among the losers.”
Family of Imran Chapter (3:85)
(70) Chapter: Obligation of believing that the message of our Prophet Muhammad (saws) is for all people, and the abrogation of all other religions
It is narrated on the authority of Abu Huraira that the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) observed:
By Him in Whose hand is the life of Muhammad, he who amongst the community of Jews or Christians hears about me, but does not affirm his belief in that with which I have been sent and dies in this state (of disbelief), he shall be but one of the denizens of Hell-Fire.
Reference: Sahih Muslim 153In-book reference: Book 1, Hadith 293USC-MSA web (English) reference: Book 1, Hadith 284 (deprecated numbering scheme)
For a Start as Muslims we have an unshaken firm faith that Prophet Muhammed peace be upon him is the First human to open and enter Paradise followed by all believers from different previous nations.
The Prophet Muhammed (saw) will be the first person to enter Jannah (paradise) of whom it is reported through an authentic hadith its keeper will not allow anyone else in.
Anas bin Malik reported: The Messenger of Allah (saw) said: I will come to the gate of paradise on the Day of Resurrection and would seek its opening and the keeper would say, “Who are you?” I will say, “Muhammed.” He would then say, “It is for you that I have been ordered and not to open it for anyone before you.”
Therefore, the angel will not open the door to anyone before Muhammed (saw), so he will be the first person to go through the gates of Jannah.
As regards the hadith on the authority of Bilal (ra) where the Prophet (saw) heard the sound of his footsteps in Jannah and asked what he had done whereby Bilal was admitted before him, this relates to his seeing the migration of his soul in his dream.
The Messenger of Allah (saw) said “Their (shuhada’s= martyrs ) souls are in the crops of green birds, which have lamps hanging from the throne, and they roam freely wherever they want in paradise, then they return to those lamps. Their Lord looked down upon them and said: ‘Do you desire anything?’ They said: ‘What could we desire when we can roam freely wherever we want in paradise?’
Allah Exalted He did that with them three times, and when they saw that they would not be left without being asked, they said: ‘O Lord, we want you to restore our souls to our bodies so that we may be killed in your cause again.’ When He saw that they had no need, they were left alone.” (Muslim)

Abu Hurairah narrated: The Messenger (saw) said: “Gabriel came and taking me by the hand showed me the gate of Jannah (paradise) by which my people will enter.” Abu Bakr then said: “Messenger of Allah! I wish I had been with you so that I might have looked at it.” The Messenger of Allah (saw) then said: “You, Abu Bakr, will be the first of my people to enter Paradise.” (Abu Dawud)
